The Abilene Arts Alliance mission is to strengthen the area’s cultural life through strategic investment in its cultural resources; to be an advocate for cultural organizations, activities and initiatives throughout the community; and ensure the cultural development of young people.
In 2016, the Abilene Cultural Affairs council, with the generous support of the Abilene community added lights to 50 trees downtown on Cypress, Cedar, and North 1st, in front of the Grace and Railroad Depot, and in 2017 we opened the Adamson-Spalding Storybook Garden on the Southeast corner of the Abilene Convention Center lawn. The Garden is another well-lit addition to the downtown Abilene landscape, helping to create an inviting, safe, family friendly destination for Abilenians and visitors. Each Christmas season we hope to continue expanding the downtown lighting initiative by decorating our downtown storybook sculptures, gardens and parks in colorful Christmas lights to continue creating that whimsical and inviting atmosphere. Your contribution will go directly to the purchasing of lights and other supplies, and any amount you can contribute will help!
